Go to http://smile.amazon.com/ and search for Figs 4 Fun.  Pick it or any other charity and Amazon will donate something like 0.5% of your purchase price to the charity you pick.  Every little bit helps.  :)

That is a good tip!  With 11 Grand kids and their parents, I shop Amazon often.  Prime member.  How do you know these things Bob?

Does Ebay do this too?

I already selected.  Too late for this worst month of our gifting!  It's like Christmas here.  6 birthdays this month alone!  Then nothing till summer.  Why does my family decide to procreate just in time for March birthdays?  I will always question...........

Awesome. I had no idea about this at all. I have wondered about companies that had matching programs for their employees, but hadn't gotten very far on investigating that.

I just supported Figs 4 Fun Foundation at AmazonSmile. I shop. Amazon gives.
smile.amazon.com
When you shop at AmazonSmile, Amazon donates to the charitable organization of your choice. Who will you support?

Sweet!  I bought some supplements and 5% went to Figs 4 Fun!  Not much, but it adds up.

um, if i understand this correctly, to get the donation you must log in thru amazon smile.

if you do the regular log in, it looks like there's no donation.

true?

 update: not true. it took a week or two, but now i go right to amazon smile.

True!  :)   And unfortunately, it's only 0.5%.  But it still adds up.

I've made several purchases thru Amazon Smile in support of the Foundation including my new awesome lime green ceramic cookware, 18 new solar lights for my driveway, books and other 'necessary' items for survival. ;-) Once you set F4F as your charity of choice it will come up automatically every time.

I always order through Amazon Smile.  Just did, in fact, but Birthdays and Christmas is coming.  This is my favorite avenue of donation.

I just splurged on a 28 station mist cloner, rooting agents, grow lights, a digital timer... all with Amazon Smile for F4F. Too bad there isn't some way to keep track of how many dollars we've earned for F4F. There should be a rewards program so that the top spenders get some free cuttings from Jon.

Actually, igive is an add on to Amazon.  You go to the igive site first, sign up and designate F4FF.  I give then sends you to the smile.amazon.com site and F4FF gets both igive and Amazon donations.

Jon, I really like what you are doing here. Would it be possible to fund some projects? It would be very fulfilling if people could donate directly into funding an expansion or something like that.

Apparently, Amazon quit on iGive, so you can no longer combine your donations.

amazon quit igive.jpg 
The good news is that iGive.com still seems to know who Figs 4 Fun is.  The bad news is that Amazon doesn't.


amazon no figs 4 fun.jpg 

texaminator29 is right... Figs 4 Fun is not available on Amazon Smile :-(
